The Lagos Badagry Black Heritage Festival (of which the Lagos Carnival was a part) seems to be a good idea currently hidden within a strange amalgam. Its hard to know who the festival is for. Calling it a 'black heritage' festival is a distinctively western turn of phrase, which makes it sound as if the event is designed for second generation diasporic Africans, used to thinking of themselves as black as much as African, as well as of course for African-Americans. Perhaps the idea here is to tap into the black American tourist market that heads more readily for Ghana.
